The Limestone District School Board says a class cohort is isolating after a second case among the group caused the health unit to declare a COVID-19 outbreak.

There are now three cases of COVID-19 linked to Loughborough Public School, but only two are attributed to the same Grade 4 group.

The health unit declared an outbreak within the cohort Sunday, and ordered the group to self-isolate. Some students in a bus cohort have also been determined to be close contacts of an active case, and have been told to isolate.
